Rep. Evelio Leonardia said yesterday that under his watch, P2.38 billion in public works have been completed or are currently in various stages of implementation in Bacolod City, but he hopes to hit the P5.68 billion mark before his term ends next year.
Leonardia, who delivered his State of the District Report on his birthday at the Garden Royale at the Goldenfields Commercial Complex in Bacolod City, said it is his wish to deliver an additional P3.3 billion in projects to Bacolod City by 2016.
“It is my dream, my hope and my birthday wish that if not all, at least most of these projects would have been realized during my incumbency as congressman, so I can say later that P5.68 billion worth of projects were poured into Bacolod City,” Leonardia said.
